The nature reserve Flymossen is located in a flat landscape where rains relatively often. Because of this there are a bunch of mires other than Flymossen surrounding it. Flymossen is one of the bigger ones and is despite the fact that peat mining was carried out in the area one of the most valuable and interesting mires in the county.
Flymossen is a pretty rare and interesting mire. It has several boggy areas separated by wide, slightly sloped marshes. The entire mire is sloped westward which is why the water is collected along the western side in a stream running north. Some bigger mainland islands exist where some are relatively untouched and have features some asp and broadleaved trees. On Hästön and Hallsberg there are remains of an old cottage.
Bird life on the mire is very rich. Redshank, crane, golden plover, lapwing, curlew and a few more can be found here.
